Marketing: CFUGs

G’day:
I just saw someone mention a CFUG meeting on Twitter.

Should some representation from Lucee be trying to contact CFUGs to do a
presentation to them?

What is the programme for getting the word out there?–
Adam

There’s a public list of CFUG on:

http://coldfusion.adobe.com/coldfusion/index.cfm/user-groups/

Note: as usual and expected it doesn’t seem to be quite well maintained, quite a few of the entries are dead (e.g. 404ing).

Essentially Lucee needs kind of a community outreach program to coordinate people giving sessions to the UGs. Happy to offer that to some of the AU- and NZ-based UGs where I regularly travel to anyway or so.

Cheers

I’d agree with Nick and Denard, but with one wrinkle. I’m the current
BACFUG manager (the second one since Sean stepped down), and we still
meet at an Adobe office in one of their large meeting rooms. So it’s
still a bit awkward to have Railo (or Lucee now) specific topics, but
I’m definitely open to having them if Adobe doesn’t care.

Yeah, gonna have to concur with Nick. CFUGs aren’t even relevant to
Adobe anymore. CFML isn’t really relevant to anyone at Adobe, except
maybe enterprise sales. And most CFUGs have become less CFML oriented
and more web development oriented to stay alive, so… I can say
NVCFUG would be more than happy to have someone present on Lucee, or
give me a hand with some materials and I’d be happy to present Lucee
to NVCFUG myself :wink:

has had more Railo presentations than ACF presentations.

I couldn't test my luck by using one of the UGM/ACP Connect
accounts, but otherwise I doubt the meeting topics are even on
their radar anymore.

    One thing to bear in mind is that Adobe has not been very
    receptive to its official CFUGs having talks about "competing"
    CFML engines so tread carefully. They’ve changed the rules
    about it several times. At one time it was completely
    verboten, then they softened to allow community members to
    present as long as it was not recorded / broadcast via
    Connect… I’m not sure where things stand these days (it’s been
    a while since I presented Railo at BACFUG and that was
    considered a personal favor to me at the time). Also a number
    of CFUGs have become more-than-CF UGs and the rules there may
    be different again.

Yup, correct. I’m not sure, but my feeling is that people at the Adobe “community” team don’t really even care about CFUGs much these days, they only care about Creative Cloud and all that stuff.> On Feb 2, 2015, at 1:46 PM, Kai Koenig <@Kai_Koenig> wrote:

I’d also ditto the earlier replies. I wouldn’t worry about discussing an
ACF competitor at all.On Monday, February 2, 2015 at 2:50:55 PM UTC-6, Adam Cameron wrote:

We did once a road trip in the us and visited a lot of cfugs to present
Railo, what was really great because you met other people’s than you meet
at conferences. At one of the cfug events Adam Lehman, head of the
coldfusion team at Adobe at that time, was in the audience. But like Sean
said, then Adobe changed the rules and this was no longer possible. Since
then we never approached cfugs directly anymore.
Put of course we can help out with material to do so, we should publish
material like this on our website. we also discussed to do a road trip in
the us and in Europe to spread the word, but not at cfug events. Simply
events like we did in London for the launch of lucee. I would also love to
see lucee conferences in the future and we already in talks with Michi Hnat
to do something together with cfcamp.
